The War is Raging
Our war is not physical, but spiritual. Our war is not for the amassing of territory or wealth but for the minds and souls of men. Ours is a war of words and ideas not of killing and destruction.
We are made up of three elements;"And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one."- 1Jn 5:8 Wherever the spirit is the mind agrees and the body follows. We are led by influence, however mostly through spiritual influence.
The greatest threat the reformation presented when Martin Luther and William Tyndale took Textus Receptus and translated it into the common tongue was to Rome's authority, authority they claimed they had through Scripture, but once people had the Bible in their own hands and free from the clergy's influence they quickly understood that Rome had no authority other than a perceived one that they gave themselves (much as it is today) and the yoke was broken. The war of the spiritual was influencing the physical and as such the truth was setting people free; free to worship God without the encumberance of Rome's tyranny and coruption.
This war that the reformation started is still in high gear today, and the goal is still the same, it is for the minds and souls of men.
As time draws to a close we are experiencing an ever present and increasing push from the forces of evil who have succeded in inflitrating most areas of influence in society and have been waging this war of words and ideas to slowly gain ground in the minds of people everywhere.
But is there a defense? Is there a way to counter this offensive attack upon truth? Solomon told us that truth/wisdom is a defense - “For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.” - Eccl 7:12
Our goal is not to win the war on this earthly plane, for that is already doomed to disappointment. Our goal is to reach as many as possible, as many as will allow it, with the truth so that they too may be set free from the tyranny of being under the rule of occultic leaders who care not for our well being. For once the war waged and brought to it's conclusion a great divide will have been clearly established to where it will no longer be a question as to whose side the varying parties are on, for all will have made decisions concerning their allegiance. God does not send anyone anywhere, they do it all by themselves in the exercise of their free will to decide for themselves what their eternity will be like.
The first step in disarming those of us from being able to do our job effectively is to attack the tools of the trade, and in this case the tool is the truth found in Scripture. If Scripture can be weakened and diminished then false ideas and influences can be introduced into the mindset of the populace that, working incrementaly, snowballs it's effect, and minds are seared with the hot iron of deceit.“Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” - 1Tim 4:2
The attack on God's plan has always had it's detractors; it started in the Garden of Eden. It was present when Nehemiah was building the wall. It was there when Pilate was influenced to have Jesus killed. It reared it's ugly head in forming the Jesuit Inquisition that saw thousands of Bible believing Christians tortured and murdered. It has been steadily at work in our schools, churches and entertainment. It is present in the renewed flat earth movement.
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” - Eph 6:13 Once truth has been established through testing it against Scripture as we are indicated to do in 1Thes 5:21 we are to stand on that truth regardless of detractions, opposition of science falsely so-called, or flase brethren who value the things of man over the things of God.
We are the few. We are the remnant, those who hold the testimony of Jesus Christ until the end. See Revelation 3: 4-10 that is speaking of the spiritual church of Philadelphia.
The wordly churches of organized religion have about all been compromised through unrelenting infiltration and slow indoctrination with ideas and dogma designed to diminsh and remove the glory of God in His Son Jesus Christ. They are not bearers of truth. Education has been infiltrated and no longer teaches precepts of truth and loyalty but have adopted Alester Crowley's satanic moto of "do as thou wilt".Science has been completely infiltrated by those with the universal agenda of the occult to where it is no longer true science but a pseudoscience teachings lies and deceptions. Government is fully infiltrated by those dedicated to destruction of Biblical values and truth.
There remains only one source of truth, and it is not in a church, a pastor, a lecturer, a politican or the law of man; that only source is the same one that was brought out of the darkness and placed in the hands of the people everywhere, and that source is The Word of God.
Jesus had the problem of disciples leaving Him for things that He said (Jn 6:66) but it was all summoned up in Peter's rather downplayed declaration "Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life."- Jn 6:68
If this war is to be spirituality successful that has to be the bottom line.
